Stained Glass Artist Melissa Janda Joins Willet Hauser Architectural Glass

(PRWEB) October 08, 2014

Willet Hauser Architectural Glass, Inc. announced today the recent recruitment of renowned stained glass artist, Melissa Janda. Bringing 20 years of experience in the field of stained glass with her, Janda serves as the Art Department Manager and Senior Glass Painter at the studios location in Winona, Minnesota. Though Janda is adept at all aspects of stained glass production, her specialization is in glass painting, design and restoration work.

Before entering the world of stained glass, she received her BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design where she majored in Drawing with a minor in Illustration. Her professional experience with the craft first began in 1993 when she worked at Conrad Schmitt Studios. Janda then went on to work at Jaeger Studios before leaving to manage her own studio, Melissa Janda Studios in Chicago, Illinois and later Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for ten years while she subcontracted work as a glass painter.

During her time in Chicago she also worked for a handful of studios, including Curran Glass Studio, Regina Art Glass, Glass Art and Decorative Studio, Two Fish Art Glass, and others. In 2008, Janda returned to Conrad Schmitt Studios before relocating to Winona, Minnesota to manage Willet Hauser Architectural Glass Art Department.

Janda has a deep appreciation for the great traditions of stained glass.

I have one foot firmly planted in the rich past, with the other stepping forward into the future of contemporary innovations, she said.

In addition to her 20 years of experience, Janda offers Willet Hauser Architectural Glass, Inc. a dedicated spirit to the craft, in which she is constantly striving to learn new techniques through the participation in a multitude of workshops and classes.

A close look at her work process and unique methodology was recently featured in an Artist Profile for WOSU Public Media. The video interview follows Jandas process in creating a commissioned stained glass piece of art and features some of her favorite personal pieces. To view the video, visit: .

Porsche Unexpected Exhibition and Book Signing by Michael Furman at Winfield Gallery

Carmel, California (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

Winfield Gallery presents Porsche Unexpected – Photographs and Book Signing by Michael Furman. This long awaited book and body of work is finally being unveiled in Carmel during Car Week in Carmel, CA.

Porsche Unexpected is researched and written by Porsche historian Randy Leffingwell, and Cameron Ingram, the second generation of Ingram Porschefiles and photographed by Michael Furman.

This title will relate the Ingram family experiences as they began collecting, analyzing their efforts with those from major collectors who also jumped into car collecting. Porsche Unexpected will then delve into the collection which reads like an all-star list for any fan of the marque. This book is a must-have for anyone interest in Porsche.

About Michael Furman

Michael Furman has had the unique pleasure of photographing the worlds most significant cars. From the earliest conveyances to cars that foretell the future, Michael has created portraits that insightfully express his subjects historical and aesthetic importance.

A key element to Michaels style is to present the car from the perspective of the designers and engineers who created the car; their thoughts, their motivations, and the social and political context in which they worked. His approach has been graciously embraced by major collectors, museums and concours events around the world.

For most photographers, studio car photography would be a daunting task. Automobiles are large, highly reflective objects that present a myriad of technical photographic issues and countless opportunities for visual excitement. Throughout his many years, Michael has found limitless possibilities to relate the many facets of automotive experience to his audience, and most importantly, inspire the next generation of automotive enthusiasts to continue this appreciation and respect.

As a young boy, Michael Furman first picked up a camera to photograph a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe. And thus began a life-long love affair with cars and cameras.

Michael studied photography at the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology, earning a Fine Arts degree in 1974. Upon graduation, he opened his studio in his native Philadelphia, and built a successful business shooting still life assignments for major advertising and corporate clients. But it was a long-standing love of cars that led him to the challenge of shooting cars in the studio.

While shooting new cars for the major manufacturers, Michael was asked to shoot a number of vintage automobiles and motorcycles. He instantly became enamored with these elegant forms; this path leading to his position as the most sought-after photographer of significant automobiles in the world.

Major exhibitions have included Michael Furman at The Automotive Hall of Fame, Legendary Italian Automobiles at the Alden B. Dow Museum in Midland, Michigan and in 2011 The Ralph Lauren exhibition in Paris. Michael is a regular guest lecturer at art schools and professional gatherings across the United States. He has also been honored by American Photographer, Communication Arts and PhotoGraphis, AutoAficionado, Automobile Quarterly, Automobile Magazine and The International Historic Motoring Awards.

Shweiki Media Printing Company Announces Sponsorship of 2014 Austin Film Festival

Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 14, 2014

Shweiki is proud to announce that they will once again be serving as the official print sponsor for Austin Film Festival–the premier film festival recognizing writers’ and filmmakers’ contributions to film, television and new media–and printing the official program, the film pocket booklet and all mailers for the event.

Austin Film Festival is an annual film fest and conference–this year, running October 23-30–with the mission “to further the art and craft of filmmaking by inspiring and championing the work of screenwriters, filmmakers, and all artists who use the language of film and television to tell a story.” Known by many as “The Writers festival,” AFF is a nonprofit organization funded and supported by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, City of Austin Economic Growth & Redevelopment Services/Cultural Arts Division with the belief that an investment in the Arts is an investment in the city’s future.

All AFF events are open to the public (and many are free), and while badges of various levels are available for purchase, the fest prides itself on its accessibility, offering discounts to members of nonprofit art organizations and awarding grants to hundreds of local teachers and students to facilitate their introduction to the arts. As part of the conference aspect of the fest, AFFs Arts Education Outreach Program also produces a series of panels on creative writing, storytelling, and career and film school opportunities that are geared towards students and teachers.

Along with their efforts to make the festival accessible to as many interested members of the public as possible, Austin Film Festival also works to support local arts organizations and businesses by providing a platform through which they can showcase their services. AFF has partnered with organizations including the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau, Texas FilmCommission, Texas Book Festival, LBJ Library, Bob Bullock Texas History Center, Emancipet, University of Texas at Austins Radio-Television-Film Department, Dell Childrens Hospital and more.

Notable screenings this year include the kick-off film, the US premiere of Barry Levinson’s “The Humbling”; Jon Stewart’s directorial debut, “Rosewater”; “The Sound and the Fury,” James Franco’s adaptation of the William Faulkner novel, and many, many more. Information on the festival and the full schedule can be found at, and badges and passes can be purchased by clicking here.

This marks the eleventh year that Shweiki has contributed their high-quality, hassle-free printing services to the Austin Film Festival, and the team members and company as a whole are excited to once again collaborate with the festival team. Shweiki is also making its printing services available to filmmakers, offering a Film Festival Promotion with discounted prices on posters and postcards (complete with free augmented reality) that is redeemable via one’s Austin Film Festival promotional code.

Shweiki Media’s mission has always been to help publishers improve by providing the most profitable, hassle-free printing experience possible. This includes guaranteeing the highest quality product, exceptional customer service, world-class communication, an on-time guarantee, and no surprises–whether printing magazines, postcards, flyers or anything else.
